Naomi, Ashley Judd Abuse (VIDEO)

More details are coming out about Ashley Judd's revelation that she was abused as child, as her other family members including Naomi Judd are coming forward to give their perspective on it.

On "The View" Wynonna and Naomi both spoke about their family struggles, and Wynonna's own revelations in her own 2007 book that she too faced abuse. Wynonna said "People are trying to almost pit us against each other and I want to come out and say, 'Listen, we agree to disagree in our family, but we show up and support each other for who we are.'"

Ashley Judd says she has received tremendous support, and "The things that I went through... are completely common in this country, you know a family system that for some years didn't work very well and the kinds of things that happen in families that don't work very well happen to all of us, and...I found my own recovery."

Naomi and Wynonna Judd have responded to Ashley Judd's recent revelations in her new memoir, "All That Is Bitter & Sweet," that she was sexually abused as a child and neglected. "I'm a single working mother and I'm raising two teenagers and we're breaking the cycle with this generation, because in our family, we're not terminally unique, we're just like every other family, we have the same issues, [but] ours are microscopically looked at," Wynonna, who documented her own abuse in her 2007 book, "Coming Home To Myself," told the ladies of "The View" on Thursday.'"
